C&p Exam Questions

Question

I had a C&P exam on November 30 2009, os a few days ago. My first one was done in Novemeber 2006. How often do they do C&P exams? Also, the mental health counselor I see asked if it was a P&T ( I hope thats sounds right), how do I know if it was a P&T? Do I have to request P&T or do they automatically do one? Sorry so many questions, I am so confused about this. I do appreciate all information I get form this web site. You guys are very helpful, Thank you very much.

Hi Chemdogg,

The number of C&P exams may vary, based on what is going on. I had a C&P in 1997 and then another in 1999. I had two because I convinced the BVA that the first one was inaccurate. They even referred me to another medical facility for some testing, so you the exams may require more than one visit to the hospital. I won my claim after the second one.

I do not know much about P&T, but noticed that you are 100%. Some of the elders here can add more info.

Not sure,

Back in november 2006 they put me on temporary 100% disability. My Ptsd is bad, I dont like to be around people at all, I hate going to My VA appts, because I hate seeing people. My wife calls me a hermit, becasue I stay in my room alone because its where I find most peace. I have no idea about anythign really, I just do what VA tells me about appts. So I dont know if and when I am permanent 100%, from what I am guessing I am temporary. Thats why I am curious how many C&P appts I have to do over how many years or what? I am totally confused. I feel like a first grader in high school, I am that lost about The C&P exams, and about P&T. I have no idea, I cant buy a clue. so I am just looking for any help at all. I think I will get more information from all the wonderful people on this site, than any other way. I was lucky to find this site. Thank you all for any and all help. You all are wonderful people.

Look at your rating decision letter. It it says you have Chapter 35 benefits you are permanent and total. How old are you? That is usually a factor in the VA sending you for exams in the future. Age is not supposed to matter, but if you are under 55 if is more likely you will be sent for future exams unless they say you are permanent and total.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
